That was classic.
But I think what really triggered it was sending those 4 guys home. If he just had them suit up and just sit in the bench the whole game, there probably wouldn't be much of a problem.
Exactly. I think that was a big part of it.
Pop is probably my favorite coach in the league (him and Doug Collins) and I respect his decision to do whatever he sees best for his team but I also see why Stern would have issue with it.
I still think it's 95% motivated by economics and 250k is pretty ridiculous.
